At the turn I was one under, but a 20 footer on 10 got me to -2. Birdies on both par threes and a short par 5, got me to -5 which is 10 years later the score I chase every time I tee it up.
What I am not able to replicate during most rounds is the calmness I felt of being so present with my now wife and the stillness of that round.
67 is the number I will always chase.

I consider this 77 my best round ever because my driver was suddenly cursed that day that my drives went like 170 yards, low and left. It was ugly and embarrassing.
It was my short game and putting that saved me.
I was scrambling and draining putts like there was no tomorrow. And to think that we played a course that was longer than my usual muni courses, greens were slick and never flat. I needed to drain a 40 foot putt from the fringe to save bogey and get that 77 and win that game by 1 stroke in our league.
So what stood out was my short game. Lights out putting, crazy chipping. I wish I can do that every time I play.

The ting that really stands out about that day were the gnats. They were insane! Like a black cloud swarming around your head at all time. I’m talking about what felt like 50 of them crawling on your face as you tried to hit your shot. Turns out it was just enough distraction to keep me from thinking about golf...

One of my most disappointing rounds was when I started birdie, birdie, eagle on the first three holes to start -4. Went downhill so bad I don't even remember what I shot that day. All this happened 25-30 years ago in my younger days. Lol.
Posted 14 March 2018 - 10:09 PM
my putting was so ridiculous i had a 12 footer downhill with about a 1 pin break and i asked the guy what the odds were that id sink
the putt. he said 100% you will hole that putt. i did.
sometimes when golf is good its good. and when its bad its bad. i lost to a guy that shot 72 and had a bad day LOL

The second time was my last round of 2017 in June. Developed severe Tendonitis in right hand and wrist. I was +2 thru 3 and was going to walk off every shot hurt so bad after my layup on par 5 4th. I kept playing. Drained a 20 foot birdie there. Hit a 6 iron to 2 feet on 5. Made a 20 foot birdie on 8. Missed a 6 foot birdie on 10. Scrambled for great pars on 12 and 13 (made 15 footers). -1 then four bogeys coming in because it hurt so bad I couldn't make a confident swing into the ball. Impact hurt like a mofo.

But my ego wont let me try that strategy again. I really hurt having to play my second shot from so far back and I wonder how what I could have scored had I been more aggressive off the tee. The answer is probably a higher score though...

I've also had 75s where I drained every putt I looked at, and a couple mid 70s rounds with two eagles each (one of those with an ace). Which was best?
I'll say what I think I hit the ball best was the 70 last year. I remember being able to just let it go and take the result. I also remember 3-putting from 4 feet, followed by a chip in eagle and a birdie on the hardest hole on the course. It was the closest I've felt to being a tour pro, where I knew I could recover from my misses. Wish the number at the end of the day had been lower.

That's funny because I have told people for years that great golf is pretty boring....Down the fairway, on the green and no drama. When you play with really good players, I think you really start to notice that. They never get behind the 8 ball anywhere during the round and rarely hit any spectacular or memorable shots.
This sums it up for me. I've had maybe a couple of rounds where I just got into a rhythm/zone of knocking driver in play, hitting iron on the green or leaving an easy chip. Compared to the usual drama's of hazards and tree shots it felt very dull. 8 iron to 25 feet, easy 2 putt, rinse repeat...

Well the whole season (golf is a spring sport here) I'd been shooting in the low 90s... I Think I'd broken 90 just a couple times in competition. Well at the end of the season is the district tournament where the top (I think 15) players qualify for the State tournament. Its a pretty big deal to qualify for state and I always considered it well beyond what I was capable of.
The actually district tournement... I warmed up on the range and hit the ball like absolute GARBAGE. I mean really bad. The course it was on was really hard and I was thinking I'll be lucky to break 100. Tee off. Pared one, pared two, three, 4, 5. I was actually making pars. Had a bogey here and there. Drained a 30+ foot birdie putt on the 10th (600 yard par 5). I came to the 17th hole 7 over (Par is 72). Made bogey on 17 but its a 220 yard par 3 so no real harm there.
18 is a dogleg left par 5. Lake on the left, woods on the right. I push my drive, hack out, push my third into the woods right of the green. As I'm up there a golfer from another school (he's a friend) asks how I'm doing then tells me "82 or better and you're in." I go on to make double bogey and qualify with an 82, right on the number.
Side story, If I'd shot 81 the guy who went on to be the individual state champion wouldn't have even qualified for state, he also shot 82.
I've shot way better since. Placed in the top 10 of am tournaments, shot under par. Been scratch. But that round stands out in my mind as my best ever. It was going to be my last high school tournament and I ended up shooting a good 10 strokes lower than my average.
